The foursome, Michael Clifford, Luke Hemmings, Calum Hood and Ashton Irwin, landed the chart topping record with sales of 259,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan, which also makes it the fourth-highest sales week of the year, overall.
The studio album, which consists of 12 tracks, is also the highest-selling debut for a group in nearly eight years, the previous highest was Daughtry's 2006 self-titled album that sold 304,000 copies.
However, this isn't 5SOS's first time experiencing chart success, earlier this year they released a four-song EP, titled 'She Looks So Perfect,' which debuted at No.2 with sales of 143,000 and featured the hit track, 'You look so perfect standing there/in my American Apparel underwear.'
The Aussi boys' success also could be contributed to their management team, they are represented by the same company behind arguably the world's most popular boy band, One Direction. 5SOS have also been the opening act for 1D's stadium tour throughout North America.
